    I was given 2 bottles of Spring44 Gin and 1 bottle of the Honey Vodka. Before then I have been drinking Tanqueray for at least 20+ years. Since drinking your Gin and Vodka I will be switching to the Spring44 which now I consider the finest Gin out there. Keep up the good work.

    Sincerely,

    Gene
